Lightbulb Haven't been here for almost three years!

Wow, how times change. vB.org looks great! I love the new system (not sure how new it is?) to organise the hacks. I remember back in 2002 when I started hacking (at age 15!) it was just a "Full Releases Forum"!

I don't recognise many/any people on the staff list either - I think I recognise Chris M on there.

It's good to see vB hacks still going strong. 235,000 members now! There must be a whole different type of hack out these days, considering vB's latest versions have incorporated so many features we made hacks for long ago.

I randomly remembered vB.org and thought I'd drop in and say hi. Luckily I remembered my password to login, heh.

I haven't actually run a forum for over three years now, which might explain my absence from this community, and also the lack of hacks released since 2003. It was great fun when I was involved though.

I wonder if someone can tell me the few biggest changes that have happened in the last four years? I feel like I've been in a vComa for 3-4 years.

I had two owned licenses back in the day. I still have my first ever owned license though, but it is in need of renewal! Doubtful I'll have the time to startup a forum anytime soon though.

Boofo: long time no err... newreply.php.

I've been away caught up in GCSEs, A-Levels and Degree-level exams! It's amazing how big changes in the real world can completely detach you from the virtual world.

well lets be honest - you aint missing much.
If u want the truth then here it is :

Hacks in the old days where a lot better and released virtually every day.There was always something good to mess around with or something you wanted to Install.Now you come here and you lucky if something is released in a week and if it is then its proberly a minor template edit disguised as a hack.Good decent hacks are far and inbetween these days.Things aint looking so good for vb at moment as getting hacks is nearly non - existent unless you willing to dip your hands in your pocket and pay for any hacks you need.People will disagree and say vb is going strong,well maybe the board software is but the hacks are certainly not.Go see how busy Paid requests section is.Should give you some indication of how things are going.

And welcome back m8

Dean: nope! Still another year and a term to go. Exams are a real pain.

lasto: 'back in the day' there was perhaps a core of some 15-20 coders who were releasing hacks often. They were often people who had a lot of time on their hands - people in their teens. I'm surprised that this hasn't continued; perhaps the opportunity to earn from hacking has led to its demise.
